American Holidays ultimate Christmas shopping breaks – Silvija Travel Tips

The ultimate Christmas shopping breaks with American Holidays

‘Tis the season to start shopping…. Yes, though Halloween may not have even arrived yet, now is the time to start booking that Stateside shopping trip to ensure you’re well stocked up for the festive season!

For some, Christmas shopping is a chore, trying to pick the perfect gifts for loved ones whether naughty or nice. So why not brighten up your shopping spree – while also saving on amazing USA deals and exploring one of America’s wonderful cities while you’re at it?

Nothing beats New York at Christmas. Shopping on 5th Avenue,taking in the extra festive lights of Times Square, ice-skating at Rockefeller Center. It literally is a Winter Wonderland! Add in the amazing post-Thanksgiving bargains to the mix and it’s a no-brainer! This is the perfect choice for a girls’ weekend away – shop ’til you drop by day, take in a Broadway show by night and be dazzled by the incredible NYC nightlife! A perfect pre-Christmas treat.

Boston is a city that is beautiful year-round but seeing it under snow really is something special. Out in the crisp air, wrapped up warm in a down jacket as you meander your way through the streets, the city just feels like Christmas! With many shopping outlets to choose from that transform into festive hives where you’ll not only make your purchases but also enjoy the extensive decor, displays and possibly even a touch of snow along the way.

If you’re looking for some serious shopping then look no further than Chicago’s Magnificent Mile – which you can rest assured is aptly named! With a wealth of both international and national brands on offer you’ll be spoiled for choice. If you want something more authentic then be sure to check out the markets further downtown where you’ll pick up some truly special handmade gifts.

If you want to add a bit of culture to your trip, or if you’re a bit of a politics buff, then combine your shopping break with a trip to the centre of political power, history and activity in America – Washington DC! Washington DC’s unforgettable skyline is marked by some of the world’s most iconic landmarks including the White House, the Capitol Building and the National Mall. Looking for a gift that will remind you of your time in the nation’s capital? Look no further than the White House Historical Association for their annual Christmas ornament.

Tips for the perfect American Holidays Road Trip – Silvija Travel Tips

While the USA is home to some of the most famous routes in the world, only a modest number of Irish have actually undertaken an all-American road trip.

A recent survey by American Holidays showed that only 12% of their customers have taken a USA road trip.

Considering how accessible the United States are to Ireland, with more direct flights than ever to cities across the USA, and how iconic some of the road trip routes, such as the Pacific Coast Highway and Route 66, there has never been a better time to take the ultimate road trip.

To inspire Irish travellers to undertake a road trip for their next adventure, American Holidays have put together these tips for planning the ultimate road trip experience.

Get inspired – If you can’t decide which route you want to take, give the new Road Trip Recommender tool from American Holidays a test drive. Unique to American Holidays, this tool gives you tips from the already existing itineraries worked up by the experts or helps you put together your own tailor made trip.

Plot your route – The last thing you want is to get to the end of your route and realise that you missed something amazing along the way. Talk to the experts beforehand to make sure you have a comprehensive list of what to see en route.

Don’t forget your drivers license – Try to have more than one qualified driver on board. There is so much to see along the routes with such stunning scenery that it’s only fair – not to mention safer – to share the driving and allow everyone equal time to take it all in.

Why not start planning your own Route 66 adventure today? The newly launched Road Trip Recommender tool – unique to American Holidays – lets you plan the perfect road trip itinerary to suit you.

Take a Route 66 Fly/Drive from only €1999pp
Price includes: Return flights ex. Dublin, 15 nights’ accommodation in selected hotels, compact car rental with fully inclusive insurance, taxes and charges.
